Hawaii Supreme Court Refuses to Reconsider Decision in Substitute and Part-Time Teachers Case

The Hawaii Supreme Court yesterday denied a motion for reconsideration in Kawashima v. State of Hawaii. Last month the Supreme Court ruled in Kawashima that certain substitute teachers and part-time teachers who had worked for the State of Hawaii at relevant times between 2000 and 2012 were not entitled to back wages or interest for alleged underpayments by the State.

That decision by the Hawaii Supreme Court closed more than a decade of litigation and ends the claims raised by the class action plaintiffs. The plaintiffs filed a motion for reconsideration of that decision, which the Supreme Court has now denied.

The State of Hawaii was represented at all stages of this litigation, including the appeal, by state attorneys from within the Hawaii Department of the Attorney General. The class action plaintiffs were represented by the local law firm Alston Hunt Floyd & Ing.

A copy of yesterday’s ruling from the Hawaii Supreme Court denying the motion for reconsideration is attached.
